#860 When the vending machine gives you two things instead of one

Watch for teetering treats

First you spot the Teetering Treat.

It’s the candy bar hanging onto the metal spirals for dear life, just sitting there after giving the last customer the ol’ For Sale Fail and just teasing them instead of delivering the goods. And instead of spending another dollar to test their luck, they decided to walk away. Hey, we’ve all been there too, so now it’s time for some good ol’ fashioned Vending Machine Karma, also known as Chocolate Justice.

So just drop your money in, push the buttons, and listen for that sweet thump-thump of two treats dropping into the Sugar Basin at once. Now just push back the awkwardly heavy door and swipe a paw in there to scoop up your treasures. Kiss the vending machine plastic window, hold your two treats up to the sky in both hands, and then flee the scene.

Bringer of Oh Henrys

It’s snacking time.

Yes, that free treat is great because, first of all, now’s your chance to play Santa to an unsuspecting co-worker. Got someone who could use a Kit-Kat Fix? Of course you do. So share the wealth and give yourself a break together. It’s Christmas at the office again.

Secondly, no matter how much you try, you can’t return the free snack. No, there’s no wedging your hand back up there and throwing it back into its Metal Spiral Jail Cell. So ditch the guilt and smile back at the Gods of Snacking for they have smiled down upon you.

And you deserve it.


Now I've seen everything

  1. I have a sudden urge to hunt down all the vending machines in town, buying candy until this happens. That might take a while though. I’ll be on the lookout for vending machines.

  2. THIS MORNING!! I was getting a strawberry cheese danish. Only one fell out, but someone had left animal crackers in the bottom. So, I got my quick breakfast and a snack for later.

    1. Oh, and for a while our soda machine was kind of broken at work. I put in 3 quarters for a can of Dr. Pepper…. that fell out along with 2 Sprites, 3 Diet Cokes and an extra Dr. Pepper. I gave some out to people I worked with, but had one left over, so I displayed it in the lunch room for the entire building. I had a sign on it that said Free.

  3. I genuinely enjoy looking through on this internet site, it contains good articles. “Don’t put too fine a point to your wit for fear it should get blunted.” by Miguel de Cervantes.
